Zenimax and Bethesda released a new trailer for their upcoming The Elder Scrolls Online, this time focusing on the three alliances that will define the player base. See, when you play the game, you'll end up falling in one of the following "orders," as it were: Aldmeri Dominion, Daggerfall Covenant, or Ebonheart Pact.
The video goes a fair job of summing up each alliance, briefly touching on their intentions without delving too much into details. Aldmeri consist of, well, the Altmer, Bosmer, and Khajiit; Daggerfall is comprised of the Orsimer (Orcs), Redguard, and Breton; and the Ebonheart bring together Nord, Dunmer, and Argonian.
Some of those certainly make sense -- just not all. You'd think the lizard people would take issue with the Dunmer for basically enslaving them throughout history. Well, here's to hoping the lore stays mostly intact, and any inconsistencies will be properly explained. Let's avoid bringing back extinct races through space travel, too.
